Dr. Woo Jukang was born in Wujing County, Jiangsu Province, and he was a CPC member and the founder of paleoanthropology in China. He received his Ph.D. from Washington University in St. Louis, USA in 1949. He made first-hand descriptions and comparative studies of most of the human and ape fossils unearthed in China between 1949 and 1966, and was the first Chinese physical anthropologist to study human fossils unearthed in China. Woo proposed a new discipline, “Neoanthropology”, and carried out a large amount of basic research in this field. He was elected as an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1980. In addition, he was a life-long honorary member of the International Association of Anthropology and Ethnology, a member of the United Nations Prehistory and Early History Permanent Committee, a member of the Executive Committee of the International Association of Paleoanthropology, and an honorary member of the Royal Anthropological Institute.
